Fujitsu prepares to launch GoDaaS for NZ Govt

“All New Zealand government agencies have an opportunity to experience one of the most advanced managed desktop services in the world.”

Fujitsu has today announced its Government Desktop as a Service offering, GoDaaS, built specifically for the New Zealand Government.

As part of the DaaS Common Capability panel, GoDaaS is designed to benefit every agency wanting to enable a secure BYOD workplace and remote options for staff, while avoiding expensive and lengthy desktop operating system upgrade projects.

Based on Fujitsu’s global Workplace Anywhere service, which currently supports over 200,000 users, the launch of the offering will take place in Wellington on March 4.

“Fujitsu recently presented GoDaaS at the global Citrix Summit in Las Vegas where it was the star of the show,” says Stuart Stitt, MD, Fujitsu NZ.

“All New Zealand government agencies have an opportunity at the launch event to experience one of the most advanced managed desktop services in the world.”

Stitt says participants will see GoDaaS in action and learn about the commercial model, its self-service capabilities, the switching between virtual and traditional desktops, how it integrates into existing environments, and witness how a smartphone can be used as a fully functional thin-client.

But GoDaaS isn’t just virtual desktops, adds Stitt, it is a full end-user workspace service that provides traditional and virtual desktops, remote support, onsite support, application packaging, and hardware devices.

Fujitsu is a member of the Government ICT Common Capability DaaS panel managed by the Department of Internal Affairs, the Government’s ICT Functional Lead.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
